Girl's Bubble Gum Necklace Tutorial

So remember the freezer paper stenciled favor bags I shared the other day? Well, I mentioned I was working on a little something-something to go in these favor bags. Say hello to these sweet girl bubble gum necklaces!

Interested in making some fun bubble gum necklaces yourself?
They are super easy to put together
(the only hard part is piercing the gumball with out destroying it!) 
and you can mix & match
the colors to spice things up a bit.

How to Make Bubble Gum Necklaces

How to Make Bubble Gum Necklaces

Step 1: Pierce a hole on one side of the gumball using a metal skewer, or knitting needle, or get totally creative & crazy and use a meat thermometer as I did {a clean one of course!}. Avoid piercing the hole all the way through, otherwise the gumball will just crack in half.

Step 2: Flip the the gumball over and pierce a hole on the other side.
Try to line this hole up with the first hole you pierced on the other side.

Step 3: String your ribbon through the hole using a long needle.
The thicker the ribbon the harder it is to loop through.

Step: Tie the ends of your ribbon into a bow.
To fancy things up tie a coordinating bow around the necklace near
the bubblegum.
DIY Bubble gum necklace
I found the bubblegum at our local Party City.
They have a variety of fun colors to choose from.

These are my little Valentine treats I made up to send to my nieces & to give to one of our little neighborhood friends.
I know they say diamonds are a girl's best friend but I'm thinking for the 10 & younger crowd it may be something like bubble gum & unicorns.....oh, and that Justin Bieber kid.
